addressed the united nations. the general assembly there. the president strongly condemning the anti-islamic video that some say caused the unrest in the middle east, but he also says it did not justify the attack on the united states embassy. >> i know there are some who ask why don't we just ban such a video. and the answer is enshrined in our laws. our constitution protects the right to practice free speech. i accept that people are going to call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. and we must agree, there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. >> in the last couple of weeks, he pointed out those are probably not the result of a video and were coordinated. he also delivered in his remarks a stern warning to iran over its nuclear ambition. >> let me be clear. america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy and we believe there is still time and space to do so. but that time is not unlimited. we respect the right of nations to access peaceful nuclear power. but one of the purposes of the united nations is to see that we harness tha

meetings at the united national assembly. president obama had 13 one-on-one meetings last year. enough of the real news. let's gather around the water cooler to watch a people to enter snooki's name into the immortality of new jersey law. who knew her power? snooki and "the jersey shore" crew caused so much commotion the state assembly is stepping in. yesterday ocean county republican wrong that would dancer, wonderful name there introduced a snookiville law as he calls it that would let njs njs towns regulate the filming of reality tv shows. how many states even have this problem to begin with assemblyman dancer is pushing a bill that would allow towns to impose ordinances on where producers can film and even charge for extra police needed to corral crowds. this is my home state of new jersey, baby. certainly not the first time they've tried to shun snooki and her crew. her spin-off show was rejected before it settled in manchester. governor chris christie has been quick to distinguish all then tick new jersey folk from those reality stars. >> i want to remind all of you of something.

and organized. peter king of new york called on susan rice to resign as u.s. ambassador to the united nations after she initially claimed the attack on the consulate was part of the spontaneous protest after an anti-islamic video. yesterday paul ryan and john mccain slammed the administration's handling of the deadly attack. >> the response was slow, confused, inconsistent. they first said it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist attack if this was one tragic incident that would be a tragedy in itself. the problem is it's part of a bigger picture that the obama foreign policy is unraveling before our eyes on tv screens. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey that al qaeda is on the wane, everything is fine in the middle east. >> you think it's political? >> how else could you trot out our u.n. ambassador to say this was a spon ttaneous demonstrati? >> maybe they thought that at the time? >> on "meet the press" david plouffe was asked by david gregory if politics had anything to do with the administrat
